  2. Keep  a health journal or diary allows one to stay on track and also shows the progression that we often forget when we need a little inspiration. You can also track if a supplement or food is giving you discomfort.
  3. Titrate the dose of a supplement starting with 1/4 then 1/2 then 3/4 then finally the full dose may work over a period of time. In rare cases –  supplements may need to be changed to every other day and then eventually built up to a daily dose.
  4. If you still feel considerable discomfort with a supplement or program – Please email the office so we can suggest some alternatives. For more detailed discussion, please schedule a phone consult.
